Tommy Davidson multi-faceted career started with an impromptu act in a strip club. Since then, Davidson has been entertaining audiences with his outstanding talent in stand-up, television, features and music.
Perhaps best known as one of the original cast members of the hit television show In Living Color, where he came to national prominence with his dead-on impressions of Sammy Davis, Jr. and Michael Jackson, among others, Tommy Davidson soon parlayed his
success on television into a flourishing motion picture career.
Raised in Washington DC, Davidson's appearances in local talent showcases quickly led to his opening for such major music stars as
Kenny G and
Luther Vandross. After relocating to Los Angeles, Tommy Davidson performed at local comedy venues, including the Comedy Act Theatre, where he met writer/directors Robert Townsend and Keenan Ivory Wayans. These allegiances led to the actor/comedian's first national television appearance, a starring role in Townsend's Partners in Crime, and the opportunity to audition for In Living Color.
Tommy Davidson subsequently starred in three Showtime specials, an impressive film debut opposite Halle Berry in Strictly Business, a reunion with fellow In Living Color alum Jim Carrey in Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, and stand-up performances around the world. He is a favorite guest-host of Later on NBC.
